SABRENT Unveils Rocket RGB USB C 20Gbps M.2 SATA/NVMe SSD Enclosures

An ideal DIY SSD enclosure with a colourful style that's hard to miss


SABRENT has introduced its groundbreaking Rocket RGB USB-C 20Gbps M.2 SATA/NVMe SSD Enclosures (EC-RGBG and EC-RGBC), which is a significant upgrade from the popular 10Gbps model (EC-SNVE) that we have looked at in the past. These new enclosures are not just about a huge increase in transfer speed, but they’re also hard to miss with unique colour options.

The Rocket RGB USB-C 20Gbps models are capable of reaching speeds up to 20Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 2×2) with a compatible host USB port and, of course, the right NVMe SSD installed. If you’re looking for a light portable storage solution, then this enclosure is a great choice with full backward compatibility with 5 and 10Gbps ports, ensuring seamless integration with your existing setup. Both NVMe and SATA M.2 SSDs are supported across the M.2 2230, 2242, 2260, and 2280 form factors, so if you’re upgrading the drives in your computer, then you can utilise your old drive in this enclosure. This versatility means you’ll never have to worry about choosing the wrong enclosure type for your SSD.

The importance of these drives and encloses is obvious as a photographer, and you’ll understand the importance of using a working drive that can keep up with the data transfer required for backing up high resolution images and video. SABRENT has designed this enclosure with built-in thermal padding and a robust aluminum exterior to help with the heat dissipation when the drive is under heavy work loads such as editing video. This material choice not only aids in heat dissipation to prevent drive throttling but also helps protect the drive when being carried around in your kit bag. The tool-less M.2 fastener makes drive installation fast, eliminating the hassle of tiny screws.

One of the enclosure’s’ standout features is the RGB LED lighting effects, OK, this might not appeal to all photographers and is by no means an essential but it is fun, and does actually highlight a practical use as the lights change according to the drive’s status.

When it comes to power these enclosures are bus-powered and plug-and-play, with full TRIM and UASP support. This makes them an ideal companion for your portable systems, ensuring fast, external storage for files, and your crucial photography projects.

In the box along with the enclosure is ay USB-C to USB-C cable so all you need to do is install the M.2 SSD of your choice. The enclosures are designed to work with a wide array of devices, including Windows, macOS, iOS/iPadOS, Linux, Android, and more.
